Our Year 10 Geography students have been learning about hurricanes. They have learnt how they form, what the requirements are for them to form and therefore why the UK does not experience any hurricanes. They have also learnt about the weather that a hurricane can bring. They then demonstrated this knowledge by making dioramas of a hurricane in cross section out of cotton wool. Some of the best work is shown here. Well done to Jess and Charlotte.

In Year 11 students have been learning about development and have also been modelling their learning through the medium of sweets!  Students had to work together as a team to recreate the demographic transition with sour pencils and strawberry laces without looking at the model!

Europa House Bake Off

The Europa House Bake Off was held on Friday 8th March with many fabulous entries from our talented bakers.  Winners of a chef's hat for first place were Bella Molloy, Lukara Robinson and Willem Artus.  Second place went to jayden Smith for a chocolate cake that sold out in seconds!  Keira Brown and Esme Brake teamed up to take third place.  The produce was sold in a bake sale at lunchtime run by Europa House representatives, raising over £50 for St Peter's Hospice.

On your marks, get set, go!

Two carsIn Tech year 7 have been making moon buggies in the workshop. 

They start with a rectangle of aluminium, then use cutting, filing and sanding skills to shape the chassis. Pop rivet guns are used to attach the drilled axel pieces before wheels are added, once this has been done they are ready for racing!
